FDNY Memorial

At this somber memorial, pay a personal tribute to the firefighters who perished saving others during 9/11 and other disasters. 

The FDNY memorial, recognizing the Fire Department of New York City, stands in memory of fallen firefighters. Visit this former firehouse, which played a particularly significant role in the rescue operations of 9/11, to learn about the men and women who lost their lives helping others.

This memorial is built upon FDNY Ten House, located across the street from the 9/11 Memorial. The engine company was formed in 1865 and this firehouse was built in 1979. Five of its resident firefighters perished in the events of 9/11.

As you approach the building, spot the expansive bronze bas-relief bolted to its outer wall. This artwork, which spans 56 feet (17 meters) in length and 6 feet (2 meters) in height, depicts the tragic events of 9/11 and the destruction of the World Trade Center.

Spend a moment’s reflection inspecting the depictions of flaming towers and weary rescue teams soldiering into the fray. The names of the 343 firefighters who perished that day are inscribed below the bas-relief, alongside the words: “Dedicated to those who fell and those who carry on. May we never forget.” A plaque next to the memorial gives thanks to Holland and Knight, a law firm that contributed generously to its creation. One of the firm’s employees was a volunteer firefighter who perished that day.

After a visit to FDNY Ten House, spend a few hours roaming the exhibits of the 9/11 Memorial on the former site of the World Trade Center. Watch films explaining the events of the fateful day in 2001 when America came under attack, as well as its continuing impacts on global events. Attend live talks from 9/11 witnesses who tell personal stories of remembrance.

Reach the FDNY memorial in downtown Manhattan via the New York subway. For a more informative visit, download the memorial mobile application and listen to the audio guide. The memorial is free to visit.
